Viktor and Rolf Flower Bomb EDP - Review

Over the last year and a half you may have seen me mention the now iconic Viktor and Rolf Flower Bomb
perfume but I have never sat down and typed out my thoughts on this floral fusion.

Before 2011 I avoided floral scents like the plague and tended to go for fruity scents
but one day while pursuing the beauty halls I absent-mindedly sprayed out what I then deemed the oddest
bottle of perfume I had seen...a bomb shaped bottle, how bizarre?
However one little spray of this truly divine floral scent and I was hooked on the spot,
needless to say I left the store it was that day with the largest bottle of Viktor and Rolf Flower Bomb.

How would I describe Viktor and Rolf Flower Bomb?
Without going into top notes it is quintessentially the most feminine, seductive and refreshingly different
floral scent I have tested or worn for that matter, it skips the powdery notes that so many floral fragrances
rely on and is the perfect blend of rose, vanilla and violet.
Very sweet yet sexy at the same time, essentially a walk in a meadow at sundown in the summer.

  1. I want to try a new perfume so I might give this a go! x

  2. This sounds really nice, the bottle is so fun!:)

  3. I know I am definitely in the minority on this, but I am not a fan of this scent. A little too strong and powdery smelling for me.

  4. I've got Flowerbomb, and I'm obsessed with it, it's my signature scent! x

  5. Its on my wishlist I hav sampled it before,u hav convinced me that I need it. Fab review as always

  6. I got this for Christmas and it's just such a gorgeous fragrance. I love everything about it! It's not as sweet as i usually go for but it's by far my favourite scent ever now.

  7. This is probably my most favourite scent right now but sadly it's one I just can't afford :( so sad!

  8. I love this scent, it was my signature scent for a long time and I have three bottles of it stashed away (generous gifts at one time or another) but I've grown a little tired of it now & want a bit of a change to wear during the daytime. Any recommendations for something similar but a bit lighter?


    1. I don't know of anything similar that is lighter sorry :( but I have heard the Zara have a scent called Black Orchid or something in that vain that supposedly smells similar?

  9. I got the roller ball & love it!
    Definitely need to get the biggest bottle soon.

  10. Love this perfume im just too tight to buy it :(


  11. One of the best perfumes ever!

  12. have been wanting this perfume for ages, just can't quite justify spending the money while i'm a student. maybe i'll persuade someone to get it for me for my birthday in May? Have been waiting so long for it!

  13. The Flowerbomb Extreme is really lovely as well but so expensive xxx

  14. This is one of my all time favourites! When I have the money....:)

  15. The bottle is so cute, I really need to smell this!


  16. smelled this in a magazine recently and have been hoping for one ever since! I really like floral scents. thanks for the info! xx. gigi. food and beauty blogger @

  17. This is my favourite perfume. I like that its so strong!

  18. I seriously did not want to like it because everyone and their mom has this scent so when I smelled it on a paper tester, I shrugged it off, thinking it was nothing special - just sweet and floral... but now, I STILL keep hearing people rave about it (like your post!) so I really want to give it another go again. But I think I secretly just want it for the grenade bottle. it's so pretty!

  19. This smelled sweeter on the paper but it meshed so well with my skin to produce something more sophisticated. LOVE it!!
